As most of you know, architect Michael Reynolds has spent the past 46 years creating eco-friendly homes which evolved to became ‘Earthships’. These radically sustainable building incorporate 6 principals:

  1. They self-heat and self-cool
  2. They collect rain water
  3. They generate their own power
  4. They  treat their own sewage
  5. They grow some of their own food
  6. They are made from reappropriated materials.
Earthships provide a way for people in both developed and developing countries to live better lives without polluting. They use simple technology and a team of 40 people can make a 4 room house in 2 weeks.

The film follows Earthship builds in Malawi, The Philippines and Taos. It explores what it is to build offgrid whether communities in The US or humanitarian builds in the majority world.
